Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

Paradise awaits you at this brand new, charming home that sleeps five comfortably. The Master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bathroom, the second bedroom has a queen size bed and access to a shared bathroom, and the small den has a full size sleeper sofa if needed. All rooms have access to the wrap-around lanai that features ceiling fans, hammocks, dining furniture, lounge chairs and a tiki bar. For your grilling pleasure, there is a full sized gas grill on the lanai.

The house has an open feel, with ceiling fans throughout. It has a modern, fully equipped kitchen, featuring stainless steel appliances, a long center island that can accommodate up to six at the breakfast bar in addition to the dining area.

The living room has a 32” flat screen TV, DVD player, satellite tv, and a nice collection of DVD movies.

Forgot to bring your mask and snorkel? No worries! We have some you can use, because a short walk from the house is the best snorkeling on the Big Island - the Wai ’Opae Tide Pools. The offshore reef protects the tide pools from the sometimes-harsh southeastern shores of Hawaii. As you explore the maze of pools, you will find corals, schools of juvenile fish, moray eels, sea urchins, sea turtles, etc… It is like being in an aquarium! When you come home from the tide pools, there is an outside shower you can use to rinse off.

If you are looking for a romantic getaway, or a family looking to spend quality time together, our home offers something for everyone in paradise.

Excellent choix!

  • 5 of 5

La maison est très bien située. Elle est très bien équipée et très propre. Liza répond à toutes vos demandes très rapidement. Nous étions 2 adultes et 3 enfants et on était très confortable. Beaucoup de matériel de snorkeling. Les tides pool sont très agréables à visiter, surtout avec les enfants. Faites un bonne liste d'épicerie, car la plus proche est à 15-20 minutes de voitures.

Perfect home by tidepools

  • 5 of 5

We stayed only four nights but would have loved to have stayed longer. The amenities were outstanding. It was well stocked with paper goods, kitchen had spices, tons of beach towels and the community closet had anything you would need for outdoor sports.

Loved the short walk to the tidepools and we went every day. We enjoyed the chirp of the tree frogs in the evening while we slept. I most enjoyed having the windows open and the feel of being in the jungle. Would love to return!

Love this house, can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with this house. The amenities inside the house were wonderful. The entire property is beautiful and modern- from the appliances to the towels! you can tell that the owners take pride in this property. The lanai was amazing. we canceled our plans one day just so we could enjoy the house, lanai, and tide pools that the house offered. The tide pools in themselves were worth renting this property. We have 2 young children and even they were able to take advantage of swimming in the tide pools. Don't have snorkel gear or water shoes? Don't worry because this property comes with water shoes and snorkels in every size- literally! Expect rain showers to come through every few days to cool things off. It was such a treat to sit on the lanai and watch the rain and within a few minutes it was gone and we had sunny skies again. I cannot say enough great things about this house! This property really is a diamond in the rough as there is not much around and you have to travel quite a ways to get anywhere. Plan your meals and shopping trips ahead of time so that you do not have to travel back to town. If you do stay here I highly encourage you to take a whole day or two to just relax at this property. We are already trying to figure out when we can return!

The house is perfect. Everything you need and more. Well stocked, very VERY clean, private, secure, and peaceful. The area is amazing. Forget big hotels and restaurants. This is the real Hawaii.

Perfect home for us!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for 2 couples to stay in by the Kapoho Tidepools! Gorgeous wraparound porch was perfect for relaxing and listening to the ocean. 2 bedrooms in opposite corners with separate bathrooms kept it nice and private for me and my husband and my in laws. Tidepools were a very short walk away allowing for lots of snorkel trips where we saw stunning fish and even a turtle! The community was lovely and private, with birds, frogs, and lizards that made it feel like a jungle (in a good way) but with a lovely sea breeze that kept the house comfortable and not muggy at all. The house was perfectly appointed and the owner emailed great suggestions for local activities and restaurants. Hilo and Volcanoes National Park are less than an hour away so this makes a great base for exploring the southeast part of the island. I could have stayed here forever and hope to come back to the house someday with my parents or some friends!
